HRP Engagement and Communications Overview

Workshop, Outreach session

While NASA’s Human Research Program studies the functions of the human body in space, our research can also inform and inspire the next generation of space flight researchers and engineers. Sharing what we have learned with the public is an important part of HRP’s mission, and we are dedicated to making the knowledge our scientists and engineers have accumulated as accessible and easy to understand as possible.

Whether you are a student completing an assignment for school, an educator who wants to bring real-world examples into the classroom, or just an insatiably curious science buff, you are sure to find what you are looking for here.
